SUMMER OLYMPICS
Vaulting
to London
Sam Mikulak and
Syque Caesar's
journeys to the 2012
Summer Olympics
By COLLEEN THOMAS
Daily Sports Editor
For the training center of two
Michigan Olympic gymnasts, the
Newt Loken Gymnastics Training
Center has an atmosphere that is
oddly calm and relaxing.
There you'll find aformer nation-
al champion warming up to Flo
Rida's "Wild Ones" on the parallel
bars on one end of the gym, smiling,
while a Team USA gymnast prac-
tices his pommel horse routine with
his Michigan. teammates and coach
cheering him on, watching his short
but muscular figure complete his
Olympic routine.
For many other colleges and uni-
versities in the United States, this
is a rare occurrence. But for Michi-
gan, this comes as no surprise. The
University has seen a current or
former student medal at every Sum-
mer Olympics since 1900.
But out ofthe138 Summer Games
medals, a gymnast has won only
one. Listening to "Wild Ones" and
joking around with your Wolverine
teammates isn't exactly the perfect
formula to medal in London,but for
Syque Caesar and Sam Mikulak,the
pressure of snatching gold is long
gone.

Brandon wary of
using marquee
for non-profit
organizations
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA
ManagingEditor
On Thursday, the Univer-
sity's Board of Regents met and
approved the funding and sche-
matics for multiple million-dollar
construction projects, including
a new $2.8-million marquee out-
side of Michigan Stadium.

University Athletic Director
Dave Brandon came to speak on
behalf of the request to approve
the marquee.
He said the marquee will be 21
feet above the ground at 27 feet
high and 48 feet wide. It will be
located on East Stadium Boule-
vard between Crisler Arena and
Michigan Stadium and will also
be visible from Main Street. Bran-
don said it will have speakers, but
the speakers will likely only be
used on game days.
"(It's a) pretty cool communi-
cation tool to really promote our
student athletes and our coaches,
our events and all the things that

are associated specifically with
Michigan Athletics," Brandon
said.
And yet, University Regent
Denise Ilitch (D-Bingham
Farms), expressed that she had
received e-mails from the con-
cerned members of the commu-
nity. She suggested that the board
might also be used to promote
non-profit organizations or other
segments of the University.
Brandon responded, saying he
would consider it, but that the
University should be mindful in
using the marquee.
"We have to be careful how
